TK Family Lends Helping Hands
Retired teacher Joyce Domire said she has always thought of her Thornapple Kellogg co-workers and students as an extended family. That feeling was never more evident to her than after a recent slip on the ice that sent her to the hospital where she was met by the comforting and caring hands of many TK alum. Read this story about long time teacher JOYCE DOMIRE and how TK Alumni came through for her after a recent fall (copy and paste http://edl.io/n1000052 to your browser)

Congratulations to the TK Alumni Association for being honored with the Community Partner Award by the Barry Community Foundation! This well-deserved honor goes to the TK alumni who have worked very hard in less than a year to fully establish this organization. The TKAA started with just $2,000 in 2016 and have since raised more than $17,000 and are fully endowed! The first TK Alumni Scholarship will be awarded this spring to a graduating senior as just one of the many ways the organization aims to continue to support TK Schools and students! CONGRATULATIONS TK ALUMNI ASSOCIATION!
